No. The serial number is not worth a nickel more.
I have an excuse. CRS.

No more desirable than any other '54, and certainly not worth more money simply based on that particular serial number.

Depends on what he wants for it. He may be wanting more than you would pay, but someone else may pay for it.

Since they're so many of these Cubs around, only condition, and maybe location, plays a part in determining value. From what I read here, even a '47 Cub, being the first year, doesn't necessary carry more value than other years.

Well it's been sitting ,turns over but minimal compression. Prob get some oil in there and make sure the rings aren't stuck junk tires hood is beat definitely needs a rear main , pouring oil , I can't see it being more than an 800$ piece but that's just me if I could justify it it would be cool to have the first one of 54 but the guy is asking almost double that

Just last week a fellow purchased a good running Cub for $1800:
decent paint
good tires
Fast Hitch
54A blade
FH plow
FH disk
Woods RM42

Be patient and you can find a good running Cub.

Prices vary by area. Where are you located?
